    How to combine two UHF antennas...

    I got a 91xg and I'm pulling right now channels from NYcity Empire state tower but it is not easy because once I got a good signal with CBS, Fox,NBC Pix 11 channel 11 and ABC 7 in the same antenna is lost. I using a RCA PREamp1TV preamp.

    Need a clearer picture of what you are doing. Do you have just the 1 91XG antenna even though tittle says 2 uhf antennas? Are you using 2 amplifiers? What stations are you actually receiving? What is your actual question?

    yes, the 91xg is aim AZ 225, SW. I get a lot of channels from Long Inland. I would like to point another antenna UHF to Long Inland and another UHF to the Empire State where I get NBC, CBS,Fox...PIX11. I heard about combiners and splitters.

    Well the first problem is WPIX and WABC are VHF-HI stations which the 91XG is really not designed for. Your TV fool is not that great for getting NYC in the first place so you would be smart to stack the 91XG with a
    Winegard YA-1713


    or
    Antennacraft Y10-7-13


    . I would use something like a
    Pico combiner


    to send the signals from both antennas down one cable. Next you should consider a rotator for moving the antenna stack towards Long Island when you need those channels. If that is not an option then you are going to have to get creative and experiment with combining antennas from different directions. You can lose many dBs of signal strength doing this though.
